Each year, FSAS provides artists and graduates from our academic partners with time, space, facilities and in-house professional support. We also include an allowance to help them experiment and test in their practice.

FSAS offers two non-residential Sculpture awards annually: the Practice Awards and the Graduate Awards. They provide emerging and established artists with fully subsidised time and access to our Sculpture workspaces and equipment to develop, and experiment with, their practice. As part of the awards, support and guidance are provided by our Workshop manager, curatorial and administrative teams. The awards aim to support artistic practice to produce, develop and experiment by providing access to professional resources and facilities.

I have just returned home from clearing my bay at the Sculpture Workshop and would like to say thank you for the opportunity and support during my time at the Fire Station, I enjoyed it immensely. The Fire Station is a wonderful community of people and I hope to see you all again in the future.
